- Jun 13, 2003Plants For A Future - A pheonix from the ashes?
Its time for a big re think at the Blagdon site. The
first three years of the planning planning has now expired,
and we are putting a new application together and are
currently in discussion with the planners. Its now the perfect
time to form a new group with a fresh out look and a number
of new faces are already appearing. We will be holding
regular meetings on the 3 weekend of each month starting on
the 19th/20th July. If you want to get involved please
come along to the meeting, ring 01208 872 963 for details.
We've also come to the conclusion that we really have more
land than we need. We would be happy to talk with groups
and individuals looking for land.
The immediate focus will be on making the site presentable
and clear of tat. Good progress has been made in this direction:
all the piles of hardcore have now been crushed and turned
into a car park and big fun was had demolishing caravans.
Theres still a few more to go if you fancy a bit of destruction!
After that work will begin on planting around the entrance way.
The Field in Cornwall is looking really vibrant at the moment,
from a distance it really beginning to look like a woodland.
Two new volunteers have been coming a couple of times a week
and new volunteers are always welcome.
Plans are afoot for getting the catalogue off the ground.
We have already been in contact with a number of small nurseries
who are growing plants for us. Together they can supply 175
PFAF style plants.
